What does receiving this money mean to you?
I have been channeling most of my income to educate my children. This denied me an opportunity to build a better house for my family. Above all, I was not privileged to be married making me the sole breadwinner. This made my life hard as I prioritized providing better education for my children and shelve other developmental plans. This money gives me an opportunity of having better housing. I will plan KES 60000 to build a better house for my family. This will make me feel good as we will live a better life. I will also set KES 20000 to clear school fees arrears for my daughter at Chebonei Girls Secondary School.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I had a bumper harvest in July, this made me feel happy now that we have plenty of food.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I struggle to pay school fees for my children, I am working casually to earn a living. These casual jobs are paying low, about KES 300 per day which. It makes it difficult to have extra money to pay fees for my children.
